Todd - Growing Up In Appalachia
A poignant film of poverty and morality. In this exceptional sociodrama, a hungry boy finds someone's food stamps and makes a decision. The schoolhouse scene is sobering, washing is done in a basin to show that the sink doesn't work, a teacher makes lunch for kids from government-issue canned food, cooked on a gas stove located in the classroom.

Dilemma in Poverty
I used this film to remind people that immigration is not the cause of poverty in the USA, and that it has always been around in some regions...
I recalled seeing the move many years ago, and just posted a link to it on Facebook, where people are convinced refugees are diverting money from poor, white Americans.
